Bachata

Here are the 10 steps BACHATA system we tech for the beginner level (the OC Salsa Program). The first 5 videos teach fundamentals techniques, Students must know while they learn all 10 Basic steps. Those 5 techniques are :Home Position, Hair Combs and Loops, Frames, Resistance and Timing. Then follows the 10 Basic steps of Bachata. The last video shows men how to create sequences using all the 10 steps, so the student knows how to put it together, with Esteban giving examples. This videos were created for our students to have a support system to practice anywhere, anytime outside of our dance school. Practice is key. Students must know all 10 basics and techniques in order to move to our Intermediate level program. Must know foot work with a partner or by yourself, and be able to dance and stay to the music. Evaluations are made upon request and feed back is always given to students after each evaluation. There are no limits of how many times you can evaluate. Students evaluate until they move on to the Intermediate level. Evaluations are done weekly after our Salsa class, during practice time. Welcome to the OC Salsa Family and we home you can find these videos helpful in your journey to becoming a great Bachata Dancer!
